One Year without the Tube

It's been exactly a year and 175 posts since I stopped watching TV and started this blog. If you look at the number of posts per month, you'll it's really trickled off in the last quarter of the year. This is partly because I discovered a TV show that recently started airing in multiple places online. I watched all three seasons, or about a hundred episodes.

That can't account for the lag entirely however, since I finished all one hundred in a week, which should give you an indication of how good it was. However, I'm not ready to tell you what show I was watching since I may start a blog about it and frankly, I'm older than it's target demographic. I'm not sad to have done this, since it's a good program, though I do wish I hadn't compressed three seasons into one week.

The other reason I've trickled off is that I want to concentrate on other things for a while. Keeping this blog has taught me a lot about web 2.0, the future of television, the power of web portals, writing, and what it probably takes to build an audience for a website. I have a lot to learn and with time and concentration, I'm sure I could go farther. However, it's also distracted me from the very things I thought I'd have more time to do if I stopped watching TV a year ago--keeping the house neat, cooking, exercise, learning, and socializing with friends.

So you will probably see fewer posts here in the future, though possibly more on a new blog. I'm going to do one last post to wrap up this year of no-TV, however, in honor of some of the non-TV talent that I've discovered in the last year and want to promote--you'll find it later this week.
